We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Laura Welcher, Head of The Rosetta Project at the Long Now Foundation, San Francisco to our London Meetup.

Languages are works of art, great libraries, how-to guides for living on planet Earth, windows into our minds and inalienable human rights. The Rosetta Project is The Long Now Foundation's first exploration into very long-term archiving. It serves as a means to focus attention on the problem of digital obsolescence, and ways we might address that problem through creative archival storage methods.

Laura's talk titled '"The Rosetta Project: Strategies for Very Long-term Archiving" will focus on the Rosetta project and her experience with building this at Long Now.
